  • December 22, 2010 Wonderful trnascriptions

    Gerald Garcia on his Brazilian Portraits album played some of the Brian Hodel transcriptions in this book. They are outstanding. Listen to the album , then try the transcription in this book. They are not Latin jazz per se, but they have such a wonderful classical + latin sway that you will...

    be persuaded.

  • December 19, 2006 Great music, great price

    I've been working with this book for a couple of months and find it consistently challenging with authentic arrangements. If you look at Charlie Byrd's arrangements of Jobim (also a good idea) you can see how this music has more Brazilian, non-Jazz feel to it.

    Tom Jobin's music is only for people with a very good education. His music is divine.The best Brazilian music made by a man who really loved Brazil,the US, poetry and MUSIC.
